Beaten Black and Blue:

Broken and bloodied on the inside;
My world is coloured in shades of black.
But I've never understood the reason
For why I've got these scars on my back...

Cigarette burns are nothing new to my body
I took a lash from the whip just yesterday.
Why are you staring at me with those eyes again;
Is there something you'd like to say?

I've never been told to speak a word of my pain
And so I learned that I shouldn't speak...
'You'd better not say a single thing to her!'
Maybe I'm just scared and weak...

I often run to a place that's far away;
It's just a little corner inside my mind.
I've tried to forget it again and again
But it comes back to me all the time...

These people think that they know me
But a smile is just a mask to hide.
This is the crime that I keep a secret
Because it's locked away inside...

You'll never be able to help me
So don't give me your pity and tears.
Just tell me that you won't do the same thing
Because that is the worst of my fears...

I'm already past the critical point
It can't be worse in hell.
But please don't make me live again
I'd rather miss the morning bell...

"I just want to stop seeing others like me..."

Great poem. Very powerful. Very emotional. My best friend is in a simialr situation. She thinks she is past the critical point, but she is not. Because I will support her. She is keeping me away, so she is alone. Please let me help you. Let me in. Nobody will understand like I do. I feel your pain. I always knew it was there. I have the scars inside and outside too my love. Please share your pain with me. I will listen. I will care. I will love you uncondionally.
